Alpha CHECKPOINT’s Drug-Free Workplace Compliance Training is a fully web-based delivery system for supervisor and employee drug and alcohol awareness training. Online training is easy to implement, self-paced, and economical.
Training supervisors is an integral part of every drug-free workplace program whether it be Department of Transportation (DOT) regulated or Non-DOT based. Our online programs are geared towards enhancing management skills by training supervisors in drug and alcohol abuse awareness and will help them to identify, document and address employee performance problems that could be an indication of an employee’s drug and alcohol related problems.
Employee awareness training provides tools for a safer, more secure and productive work environment.
The Department of Transportation’s (DOT) rule, 49 CFR Part 40, describes required procedures for conducting workplace drug and alcohol testing for the Federally regulated transportation industry (https://www.transportation.gov/odapc). Alpha CHECKPOINT’S web-based program fulfills the DOT Federally mandated reasonable suspicion training requirements under 49 CFR section 382.603 and employee education materials under 49 CFR section 382.601.
382.603 Training for Supervisors: Each employer shall ensure that all persons designated to supervise drivers receive at least 60 minutes of training on alcohol misuse and receive at least an additional 60 minutes of training on controlled substances use. The training will be used by the supervisors to determine whether reasonable suspicion exists to require a driver to undergo testing under §382.307. The training shall include the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators of probable alcohol misuse and use of controlled substances. Recurrent training for supervisory personnel is not required. https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/granule/CFR-2009-title49-vol5/CFR-2009-title49-vol5-sec382-603
